Vineet Bahl’s show at Amazon India Fashion Week was entitled Code and came with its own hashtags. The show notes said it was a collection for women who don’t dress to impress but are confident themselves.
Vineet Bahl WIFW AW 2014
My fellow blogging buddies and I had to keep reminding ourselves that we were seeing AW collections as both Anupamaa and Vineet Bahl showed collections that could easily overlap the current Spring/Summer trends. Shame we have to wait for the collections to hit stores!
Vineet Bahl used to be one of my favourite Indian designers due to his Western silhouettes which were gorgeous. Over the last couple of years he has started specialising in India ethnic wear which I guess has more commercial sense for him but he was truly a refreshingly different designer for Western design.
His new AW14 is inspired by the celebration of every moment of life without prejudice and judgement. The collection began with muted earthy handloom silks occasionally peppered with neon embellishment detail and pastel shades slowly crept in and made way for a myriad of vintage inspired colours and delicious combinations such as Prussian blue with peach. Want!!
The tension in the lead up to fashion weeks is tangible in studios where designers will be fussing over the finishes to garments that have taken months to come to fruition. Paris fashion week is currently in full swing, however, I’m in Delhi and Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Autumn Winter 2013 is under two weeks away.
We brought you news and reviews from Delhi Couture Week a couple of months ago. Now dear Chatterboxes it’s time to go gaga for Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Spring-Summer 2013 due to start tomorrow!
Day 1 from Wills India Fashion Week in Delhi got off to a cracking start. Autumn/Winter shows in Delhi are usually of loose relevance as designers forget it gets Very Cold Indeed here in Winter and offer bales of chiffon to supposedly keep us warm. With a vodka shot please.
Veteran Indian designers showcase alongside the new generation and here I present three designers that showed yesterday and who can demonstrate the bredth of fashion coming from India:
This beautiful dress is by Preeti Chandra who offered a collection inspired by ‘matador chic’. It’s quite a tried and tested inspiration of designers from all over the world
